UPDATE:
I am slowly adding hand dyed plant dyed yarns to my shop...if there is something you are looking for please let me know. It is the photos that take so long...very few of the photos I take show the natural beauty....so I'm a lot slower than most at putting up the listings :)



As always if there is something you don't see, feel free to ask!

Wabi Sabi ...this word keeps coming up for me as I'm trying to design some clothes for myself during the quiet time of winter (ok maybe not so quiet but the other seasons are less so :) ) and although in the past I've been drawn to the hygge aesthetic....the wabi sabi aesthetic rings true for me also. Not just in my clothes but also in my creations for you. It has been part of EVERY creation I have brought to you from my humble studio on our small island. Having fewer things that are more than just beautiful - they are useful and contribute in some way to your sense of well-being. All of my textiles - blankets, shawls, scarves, kitchen linens and more - can be used every day to bring some of that wabi sabi/hygge beauty to your life. I found this quote which really puts this together for me:

"Let Beauty and Utility Overlap
Being beautiful should go perfectly hand in hand with being useful; just as a nice appearance shouldn't be more important than functionality, an object with a clear purpose doesn't have to be unsightly, either. Wabi-sabi promotes a resourceful approach by encouraging us to live with useful things we love and make home life function with as few things as possible. Investing in beautiful utilitarian objects simplifies our spaces because we end up needing fewer things to help us and make us happy."

Although having beautiful items for the sake of having beautiful items is nice...having beautiful items that are useful and help you increase your sense of well-being, that bring a quiet presence into your life ...is what Indigo Moon textiles were made for! As the outside conventional world becomes busier and crazier all the time, going within and finding that quiet stillness within that IS peace is what our time here is all about. I'd love to be part of that journey with you. Thank you for looking at my site and taking the time to read this...and breathing. And if you find something you like here...that would be very nice too :)



**********************************************
Just a reminder that ALL of my handwoven scarves, shawls, blankets are either limited editions ...or extremely limited editions as in truly "one of a kind" ...so you can shop knowing that the item(s) you choose were made specially for you :)

The organic cotton/linen blend shawls are ready! They are perfect for most of the year...wherever you live...and excellent for gift giving. They are called Pure Presence...just wrap yourself in one of these shawls and drop into the present moment.
They are found here https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/IndigoMoonStudioBC?section_id=19090769

If you are interested in having some yardage made (in 2018 or beyond) please drop me a line.

I'll continue to post items as soon as I can.....and if there is something in particular you are looking for - a specific colour perhaps - just let me know as they may be ready but not yet posted.

*******************
More naturally dyes Merino Wool yarns available soon...they are on the shelf but need photos yet so it will be a while. If you are looking for yarn dyed with cochineal, weld, madder, logwood please let me know as I have these are lots more available some in both fingering wt and sport wt....I need a helper to input everything!

And for all you dyer wannabees Merino Wool yarn is now available ready for dyeing with natural dyes (you could use regular dyes too). The season is here and we will have plenty of dyestuffs from the garden with which to dye yarn. If you are interested in trying your hand at it skeins are available already mordanted. If you are looking for silk, silk/wool blends for dyeing (but not mordanted), please ask as I don't have everything in the shop yet. Dyes will be listed in 2018...ask if there is something you are looking for in case I have it already ready :).

Creating from a place of "weaving meditation" I draw on the vibrant colours of my garden, and sky, and sea, and forest around me on an island in British Columbia, Canada. I have been about this art for almost twenty years and feel tremendously blessed that I get to create beautiful things that bring people joy.”

These are precious comforts that you will delight in for years and years to come. A joy to give, and a joy to receive.

About

Handwoven textiles and hand dyed yarn...mindfully crafted for conscious living

A calm and meditative environment is essential for me to create. In fact, I credit “weaving meditation” as THE key to the beauty of my handwoven creations and the comfort they bring to those that wear – and use – them. For almost two decades I have been practicing my craft. living a life of voluntary simplicity, making beautiful textiles to adorn your home and body. Doing fewer things to the best of my ability and doing them mindfully, with care and compassion for the earth, for my self, and for all sentient being. Hand crafted on a small island in the Salishan Sea off the main coast of British Columbia Canada.

Returns and exchange details
I always do my absolute best in creating the items I sell but if for some reason you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, please contact me before returning it, let me know the reason and I will issue a return authorization number. I must be advised within five (5) days of receipt regarding any returns – just no longer needed the item will not suffice, something must be wrong with the item unless we’ve discussed other options prior to shipping.. I will issue a complete refund (minus shipping) when you return the item providing it is returned promptly in the same conditions that it was sent (with no damage, smoke, must, perfume, ie in perfect resaleable condition).

Please note you do not need a Paypal account to use Paypal and most credit cards are accepted.
If payment is not received within two (2) days of the order, the sale will be cancelled.
Shipping
Please note that all parcels leaving Canada must have a Customs form that include your address AND a valid phone number. as of September 6th 2014. Your parcel can not be shipped without it so please include your phone number in the notes section with your order.

Orders will ship within 3-5 business days after receipt of payment and earlier if possible.

The shipping charge includes all postage and handling and packages are shipped via Canada Post expedited post. Package tracking is available at an additional charge (sometimes) in Canada and (almost always) in the US. If you would like the package tracked and additional insurance (as sometimes there is no insurance included) contact me and I can let you know the cost. Often with a tracked package shipping times are shorter as well.

I've always shipped everywhere around the world however it is a challenge to find a stable price to quote when there are so many variables! Oh my! So finally I have added International shipping - the prices are estimates. If I can send your item for substantially less I will issue a partial refund - if the price is quite a bit more I will let you know and either send an invoice for the difference or refund your purchase. Sometimes 2 items cost the same to ship as 1 - so I've not included additional pricing for second and third items etc....If I can combine shipping eg a blanket and towel - I will do that for you :). I am happy to give you an estimate for delivery - just ask me. Some items will be shipped with tracking number and insurance that can usually increase the cost of shipping. International shipments don't usually allow for either. Also items will be shipped in recyclable material whenever possible. Boxes may be used but that usually increases the cost. Blankets and shawls will be shipped in boxes (that may be recycled). For small items - I try to avoid plastic mailers whenever possible when they are non-recyclable. Manilla envelopes with bubble wrap inside are usually used for scarves, towels, table runners...smaller items - these are fully recyclable when separated. So many things to think about...and I've probably still forgotten something :)

And for local shipping too - if I can ship at a substantial savings for you I will. eg 1 towel sometimes (but not always) can be shipped as letter mail and then a modest $10 S&H charge will apply instead of for instance $20. In order to be shipped this way (remember letter mail is far slower than expedited...far slower) I won't use bubble wrap just a manilla wrap.


Please note International Customers are responsible for all customs fees, taxes, and duties associated with shipping to their respective countries.
Additional policies and FAQs
I accept custom orders and will do my best to accommodate your color and fiber choices-please contact me further with your request as well as the timeline. Since I am always working in my studio, my looms and dye pots may already be committed for a set length of time –when we talk via email I will be able to give you a better time frame. Also if yarn needs to be special ordered there may be an unknown time interval involved. And a non-refundable deposit will be required to start any work. If for some reason I am unable to complete the commission (eg family, health), a refund will be made. There may be some exceptions but this is all I can think of for now .
Custom orders are non-returnable and non-refundable otherwise..
